These days it’s rare to find a five-bedroom house for sale in London that won’t set you back at least £1million.

But social media users have come across a property on the market with a price tag under that – sounds like a bargain, right?!

Well, this quirky home in north London has certainly got people talking after an author spotted the listing on RightMove.

Writer, Sarra Manning, shared the details for the £960,000 property on Twitter, joking about how the place could do with a little TLC, suggesting a fresh lick of paint.

She went on to compare the unusual colour of the home’s exterior to “pea soup” and revealed how another home for sale on the same street is up for £1,360,000 – bit of a difference!

The property in Crouch End, is marketed by Anthony Pepe and their listing online reads: “A substantial terraced house with a large garden located on a very popular residential road in-between Crouch End and Hornsey.

“Currently arranged as five bedrooms, two bathrooms and two reception rooms, this property offers an exciting refurbishment opportunity with extension possibility subject to planning.”

Aside from Sarra, fellow Twitter users had a lot of thoughts about the house, with a few Londoners raising their eyebrows over the cost.

One person said: “It says a lot about how long I’ve lived in North London that my first thought wasn’t ‘eugh’ but ‘OMG less than £1m for a 5-bed in Crouch End! There must be something wrong with it’.”

“Pretty cheap for round here,” replied another.

Someone else pointed out that the place could be a good investment if a buyer did a little renovation work, writing: “It would be at least £200,000 more if it was done up!”

This comes after another property for sale on RightMove recently captured everyone’s attention.

A tiny home went on the market for just £100,000 and it has a rather interesting history.

As reported by The Liverpool Echo, the one-bedroom home on Preston New Road in Southport used to be a funeral parlour.

There are some clues to its former occupancy, as the property is surrounded by a black fence, with huge gothic windows set either side of a set of patio doors to the front of the house.

The property’s description describes the place as “unique”, “rare” and “truly special”.
